• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

All day I've been listening to what I thought was District 11- Globe. But I've heard units in the 300 series (331,332,333,334) I always thought District 3 was up on the Navajo reservation in NE Arizona. I really haven't heard any locations except 93 southboud, which sounds more like Districts 1 and 12. Has DPS restructured?

Thank you. It is possible I was hearing some D-3 southern units with the new district boundries. It's hard to believe that Florence is now Metro and Superior is D-11. I hadn't considered that the dispatcher may have been handling two consoles. Duh!

It's pretty cool that you can hear the whole state from right here in the metro area. I hope that's still possible if/when they switch to trunking.

you probably were listening to the right frequency for D11 however currently D11 is dispatched out of the Flagstaff center. When dispatchers take breaks or they are short, they will patch districts together so one dispatcher can work two or more districts at a time. When the frequencies are patched, you will often hear D3 units on D11 radio or D1 and D2 together, etc.
